  • I recently returned from my first Safari experience in South Africa. Not only did the Ndtuzi camp experience meet every expectation I had, but it far surpassed them! I give my highest recommendation to anyone seeking a comfortable and exhilarating safari wishing to see a host of animals (including the big 5) and birds with a truly knowledgeable and genuinely caring staff. Brett, Sherie, Don, Bruce and the staff could not have been more accommodating and professional throughout the entire 5 day Safari and stay at Ndtuzi. The vast knowledge of every animal, bird and plant that our guide Brett presented was only surpassed by his ability to track them down. The landscape allowed for breathtaking views high above rivers and made for some amazing photo opportunities. Getting close to the animals was an absolute thrill and a feeling that I will remember for a long time to come. I will not soon forget the elephants, lions, wildebeests, rhinos, giraffes, cape buffalo, antelope, water buck, hippos, zebras, and birds too numerous to count that we encountered during our safari. We loved it so much that we decided to extend our trip an extra day, just so we didn't miss a thing. Sherie made delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner that gave the experience a wonderful touch of home cooking. The entire experience was made even better by the comfortable atmosphere and friendships that we developed with our guide Brett and cook Sherie; I could not imagine that a better Safari experience is possible than my experience at Ndzuti, an experience of a lifetime and one that I will always cherish!

Global Warming Action

24 Oct 2010 -Make a Noise!

The 24 Oct 2010 is an International Day of Action on Global Climate Change and when we, the people are implored to “make a bigger noise”!  In so doing, we will draw attention to global climate change and insist on Real Solutions that will help us attain the goal of 350 parts per million of CO2 in our atmosphere and so halt runaway climate change. Some of the action planned for the big day in South Africa, namely Cape Town is an arrangement of 350 ice blocks on Muizenberg Beach and 350 banners on Table Mountain. An inspirational concept is that of the “Flapper Snappers” a group of birders who have come up with the 350-24 -24 challenge: to photograph 350 bird species in 24 hours and have the images on the internet by the next day! Some churches pledge to ring their bells 350 times and WWF’s Green Choice has 350 households creating low carbon Sunday lunches. All these initiatives are an effort to seize the attention of our leaders and let them know we want action towards combating climate change.
American scientist Dr James Hansen of NASA has long been researching global climate change and conceptualised the 350 ratio; that of carbon dioxide in parts per million in our atmosphere that we should globally be aiming for.  The advantage of using a number and not a slogon is that numerals are among the few things most people in the world recognise. With the figure 350 we now have a tangible worldwide symbol to work towards that knows no language, or any other form of human differences, but is a global initiative.
On 10/10/10, a worldwide work party was staged by Some of the tasks undertaken were simple but effective like tree planting while others involved technological knowhow like solar installations and wind turbine projects but all sent a message to our leaders- loud and clear- if we can get to work to slow climate change then so can you!
In the words of Ed Millband, Brittan’s secretary for Climate Change & Energy. “We politicians know the science regarding climate change, we understand. And, we see what is needed, and it is huge! What we don’t have yet, is the courage to take the massive, internationally co-operative leaps necessary, because we don’t yet have the feeling that the citizens of our countries are awake to the gravity of this peril. Please, make a much bigger noise.”
Here in our Kruger to Canyon Biosphere we have a bear’s share of environmentalists and conservationists and have yet to come up with a 350 initiative.
